The EPFL Center of Phenogenomics (CPG) contributes to research through tailored services in animal experimentation and ensures the welfare of laboratory animals in compliance with law and ethics. The CPG houses mice, rats, and fish in state-of-the-art, accredited husbandry facilities.
Researchers at EPFL occasionally need to conduct experiments on other animals. Such experiments are performed at highly specialized centers created for such species. The EPFL Animal Research Ethics Committee (AREC) performs an ethical review of animal experiments to be conducted abroad by EPFL researchers.
EPFL is a member of various regional, national, and international networks of excellence that promote collaboration and innovation in animal husbandry, 3Rs, transgenesis, teaching, and continuous education:
